Rita Ora responds to "Girls" criticism on Twitter

UEFA to sponsor Rita Ora's European tour

Singers Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko both expressed issues with the song.

However, it was lyrics such as "Red wine and I wanna kiss girls, girls, girls", that had the LGBTQ+ community talking.

Rita Ora is under fire because of her song "Girls," but there's someone who is not shy about supporting her message.

In an interview in 2017, Ora talked about her friendship with the openly bisexual star who is now dating Paris Jackson.

Ora is now on her "Girls" tour as fans anticipate a new album in the near future. Popular singers Kehlani and Hayley Kiyo have said that the lyrics of 'Girls' is "harmful" and accused the track of exploiting bisexuality. The singer-actress admitted that, in the past, she has had romantic and sexual relationships with both men and women.

'I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone, ' says Rita.

Kiyoko, who identifies as a lesbian, tweeted about the single shortly after its Friday release, noting that its "tone-deaf" and "dangerous" lyrical content "completely belittles and invalidates the very pure feelings of an entire community". One other fan shared a gif of an unamused dog and tweeted, "Nice he's praising his ex he said effed like 50 dudes when they were together".

Ora has now responded, writing on Twitter that "Girls" was meant to "represent my truth, and is an accurate account of of a very real and honest experience in my life". I would never intentionally cause harm to other LGBTQ+ people or anyone else.

Every single person's experience is different, and it's not normal to be suspicious of every bisexual person until they provide receipts. I'm ever thankful to my fans for teaching me to love myself no matter what. Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX's verse starts with "You know I tamed it, and then I named it/I put the lion in the cage and then I laid with her", and, as blatantly objectifying as that sounds, some queer sexual experiences are entirely consensual power fantasies rooted in objectification.
